lyrics

i lie to myself more than anyone
i guess i'm just used to the way it sounds
and i make up most of my problems
and you hate that about me you say that it brings you down

you say that i bring you down

then you say that i'm not who you used to know
when you fell in love back in '84
when i had a band, you still liked disco
and when you wanted to dance you just pulled me on the floor

you just pulled me on the floor

now we're too late
too old
too many layers came between us
i'll go
spare you the shame
when they ask 'bout you
i'll say that you're well
and the last i heard you were going by your old name

i wanted you then more than anyone
guess you don't remember it like i do
when i lied for us and hurt someone
threw it away just so i could be with you

just so i could be with you

so where is the girl from the shitty clubs
with her hair pulled back, biting her lip
when you asked how i knew it was love
holding out while i was begging for it

yea i was begging for it..

now we're too late
too old
too many layers came between us
i'll go
spare you the shame
when they ask 'bout you
i'll say that you're well
and the last i heard you were going by your old name
